A Kindness Story; Small thing can make a Big Change
A One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.
He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.
However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. 
She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?" "You don't owe me anything," she replied "Mother has taught us never to accept payment for a kindness." He said... "Then I thank you from my heart."
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her.
He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case. After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.
He looked at it, he wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught her attention on the side as she read these words......"Paid in full with one glass of milk." (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.
Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, GOD, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands."

Small Thing can make big change
One morning when I enter the Hotel for the breakfast… I asked as usually the Green tea, and the Waitress brought me the cup which was supposed to be white but today’s Black,
I was looking at other table and see that they are all White, I asked why? She asked me to turn the cup and see. To my Surprise, My name was printed on the Cup!?
So this tell me I was being treated differently and I think this is the Cafe manager‘s idea?
Anyway, a small thing could bring you some big surprise.   And I think I will stay in this hotel as long as I need to without changing to other….
Same case for Rolex, we as a customer should deserve a better explanation on the their products, however, one could always say that , who care if you are a just customer of having two Rolexes  Collector who has 1,000 that they treat you the same, but I think we should have a Rolex Ambassador who can tell more about their product and who can stand up and represent the brand and company to speak to the end customer, I wonder if there is a way that we can talk to them directly!?
